- CONCLUSIONS: Complex mitral valve modeling seems to predict an individual patient's mitral anatomy well, before surgery. Further investigation is required to determine whether deliberate preoperative practice can improve mitral repair outcomes.

Infective endocarditis (IE) is associated with high mortality and morbidity and requires surgical intervention in about half of all patients. Mitral valve repair (MVrep) is reported to achieve better results than mitral valve replacement because the insertion of a prosthesis during active infection is avoided. However, MVrep in active IE is complicated and no definitive guidelines have been compiled. The current study reviews the literature from 2000 to 2016 and summarizes the surgical details of MVrep for IE.

- CONCLUSIONS: In this large prospective cohort study we have demonstrated that adjusted long-term survival following RHD mitral valve repair surgery in Australia is no different to replacement and no different to non-RHD. Interpretation of valve surgery outcome requires careful consideration of patient factors that may also influence survival.

Rheumatic heart disease causes a significant number of morbidity and mortality in Bangladesh. Although the mitral and the aortic valve are the two most involved valves in rheumatic heart disease, the tricuspid valve disease is not uncommon secondary to, or in association with, mitral or aortic valve disease, but receives less attention as compared to the primary left-sided valve disease. Appropriate treatment of the tricuspid valve disease may improve long-term functional outcome. But the pattern and extent of the tricuspid valve involvement was not studied recently. This study was carried out to observe the pattern and extent of tricuspid valve involvement in Rheumatic Heart Disease patients. This observational analytical study was undertaken in the department of Cardiology, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University, Dhaka, Bangladesh from December 2010 to September 2011. Considering all ethical issues, data were collected from 173 subjects who underwent Echocardiography for their Chronic Rheumatic heart disease. Pattern of tricuspid valve involvement was observed by using Transthoracic Echocardiography by 2D, M mode and Doppler assessment. One hundred seventy three (173) patients with Rheumatic Heart disease was studied, out of these, 36 patients had evidence of tricuspid valve involvement based on echocardiographic findings. Fifteen (15) patients had Tricuspid stenosis and 36 patients had Tricuspid Regurgitation in the patients with TV involvement. All the patients with TV involvement had thickened leaflets. Doming, restriction of motion and calcification were present in different proportions. From this study, it can be concluded that organic tricuspid valve involvement in RHD is not uncommon in our country.

- CONCLUSIONS: Although mortality was only 1.9% during pregnancy, ≈50% of the patients with severe rheumatic MS and 23% of those with significant MR developed heart failure during pregnancy. Prepregnancy counseling and considering mitral valve interventions in selected patients are important to prevent these complications.
